Professional motorsports found their way to Las Vegas in the mid-1950s at a bankrupt horse track swarmed by gamblers--and soon became enmeshed with the government and organized crime. By 1965, the Vegas racing game moved to Stardust International Raceway, constructed with real grandstands, sanitary facilities and air-conditioned timing towers. Stardust would host the biggest racing names of the era--Mario Andretti, Parnelli Jones, John Surtees, Bobby Unser, Dan Gurney and Don Garlits among them. Established by a notorious racketeer, the track stood at the confluence of shadowy elements--secret wiretaps, casino skimming, Howard Hughes, and the beginnings of Watergate. The author traces the Stardust's colorful history through the auto racing monthlies, national newspapers and the files of the FBI.

How did life originate on Earth? For over 50 years, scientists believed that life was the result of a chemical reaction involving simple molecules such as methane and ammonia cooking in a primordial soup. Recent space observations have revealed that old stars are capable of making very complex organic compounds. At some point in their evolution, stars eject those organics and spread them all over the Milky Way galaxy. There is evidence that these organic dust particles actually reached the early Solar System. Through bombardments by comets and asteroids, the young Earth inherited significant amounts of stardust. Was the development of life assisted by the arrival of these extraterrestrial materials? In this book, the author describes stunning discoveries in astronomy and solar system science made over the last 10 years that have yielded a new perspective on the origin of life. Other interesting topics discussed in this book The discovery of diamonds and other gemstones in space The origin of oil Neon signs and fluorescent lights in space Smoke from the stars Stardust in our hands Where oceans come from The possibility of bacteria in space

Matthew Vaughn’s 2007 fantasy Stardust, based on the novel by acclaimed author Neil Gaiman, was one the highest grossing films in the UK. An instant hit with fans of fantasy and science-fiction films, Stardust features an all-star cast including Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Ian McKellan. The contemporary score was by rising British composer Ilan Eshkeri, and won the International Film Music Critics Association award for ‘Best Original Score.’ Eshkeri was also named Best New Composer of 2007 and has been called “one of the most exciting new composers to emerge in recent years.” As with the other books in this series, Sapiro provides an overview of Eshkeri’s music, examines the composer’s techniques, and explores the music in the context of the film. This book is distinguished from previous Film Score Guides by the author’s privileged and complete access to the composer.

Many try to find a belief system or a form of spirituality to help them discover a higher meaning in life. Although they may search valiantly, it can be a confusing and frustrating journey. In "Stardust: The Traveller's Way, "a guide to personal and spiritual development, author Yildiz Sethi covers a variety of elements and perspectives that help to form a set of ways to live in the present world. She explains the ancient Indian belief systems surrounding the soul from its first incarnation into the physical world through its journey toward enlightenment through a character named Surya. Through Surya, one can experience challenges and dilemmas, as well as the choices that are available. Yildiz also discusses the concept of karma from a Vedic astrology perspective, including predestiny and free will.

WINNER of the EDNA STAEBLER AWARD for CREATIVE NON–FICTION From its opening image of the varied workforce at a Vancouver postal station, Stardust is a series of literary essays defining Bruce Serafin's world. The teenage Serafin is a captivating figure, freshly arrived from the United States and eager to immerse himself in the particular delights of a still largely frontier–era Vancouver. As a young man enrolled at SFU, he refuses the perm pressed upon him in a Chinatown barber shop and eavesdrops on his rowdy neighbours in a Powell Street apartment house. Working in the post office, Serafin discovers Michel Tremblay's The Fat Woman Next Door is Pregnant and realizes for the first time that writing about working–class people is not only possible, but desirable. Later, Serafin embarks upon an intimate criticism of touchstones of Western culture. Roland Barthes and Daniel Defoe are counterparts, he suggests, and shows why. Leonard Cohen was read so avidly by the young proto–hippies of the era not because of his writing, but because he physically modelled a way to be cool. The ceremonial objects collected by anthropologists, according to Serafin, are not actually art but something else again. Serafin critiques literary magazines and western novels. He discusses the work of Don DeLillo, Terry Glavin, Steve McCaffery, Northrop Frye, and William Henry Drummond. There's an engagement to these essays that lightly sketches the workings of a mind forever learning.
